Smoke rises from buildings at the site of a car bomb explosion at a police headquarters in CizreBy Dasha Afanasieva and Humeyra Pamuk ANKARA/KARKAMIS, Turkey (Reuters) - A car bomb at a police headquarters in Turkey's largely Kurdish southeast killed at least 11 and wounded dozens on Friday, ministers said, two days after Turkey launched an incursion against Islamic State and Kurdish militia fighters in Syria. The state-run Anadolu news agency blamed the attack on the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), a militant group which has waged a three-decade insurgency for Kurdish autonomy and has been involved in almost daily clashes with security forces since a ceasefire collapsed more than a year ago. The bombing, the latest in a series of attacks in the southeast, comes as Turkey tries to recover from a failed July 15 military coup.
